Change Initiative

Join Oxfam's young leaders program.

Are you ready to transform your passion into action and become a 2017 Oxfam Change Leader?

We believe that young people are essential to creating solutions to tackle poverty and fight for justice.

The Change Initiative program offers an inclusive, engaging and collaborative space to learn campaigning skills and how to channel all that passion you have into effective campaigning to create REAL change.

Join a network of young campaigners committed to standing up for justice and taking action for a future free from poverty.

The Change Initiative* program brings together a group of young people (18-25 years old) and supports them over six months to become leaders in community organising, with training from experienced campaigners through monthly workshops, retreats and ongoing mentoring.

*Change Initiative will only run in NSW for 2017. Let us know if you are interested in participating in a program in your state here.
